Finally got around to doing a another of these, this time with walnut and plywood. The handles are purpleheart and I flocked the inside of the drawers with black flocking. I spent a lot more time rounding over the branches and outer sides of the drawers to give it a more tree branch sort of look.

Wow I really like it. You did a swell job on making it too.

I sure would like to try it if you want to pm me a copy of the template.

Very nice looking box Rick. I love the design and have made many of them myself. No matter what wood you use they all look great.

Really nice. I like the “Softer” look with rounding the edges… lots of sanding!
If you don’t mind letting me know, what’s the overall size?
Based on my wife’s positive comments on your box, I’m guessing I might be trying one myself.
How long did it take to come up with a functional design for this?

Thanks all – after seeing something similar I had my wife help with the design. Yes lots of sanding, a combination of hand sanding and a small sanding drum on a Dremel. The dimensions are 6”H x 8”L x 4 1/2”D. Here is the link to the first prototype – http://lumberjocks.com/projects/97245.

1 entry and a separate exit cut before the outside is shaped, it easier to glue back. I also intentionally made the draw depths a bit shorter to make the tree limbs more pronounced.

WNCGUY – your boxes are great also. Have wanted to try the Men’s valet boxes, next on my list!

Thanks for nice comment Rick.
I reviewed your earlier build on this design, also very nice.
Now that I know your wife provided design expertise, perhaps I can get my wife to do the same & then I’ll make one based on your work!
On most of the boxes I’ve been doing lately, I don’t have just one cut into the box… typically I make a cut across the entire width (or height depending on design) as I feel I get a tighter glue up.
Based on your work, you’ll make a fine valet box.

It would have been nice if the grain ran in the same direction as the entry and exit cuts. My wife was a graphic designer and is extremely artistic. If she draws it, I can build it !!!! We are collaborating on some stuff for an Arts and Crafts flea market next weekend. She does copper enameling so she is making me copper disks to add to some turned lidded ring boxes see below I’ll be posting these next.

Rick

Love the boxes.

Wood turning is my favorite thing to do and it is the most relaxing also.
